Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O Herre Gott, in meiner Noth
ruf ich zu dir, du hilfest mir;
mein Leib und Seel ich dir befehl
in deine Händ; dein Engel send,
der mich bewahr, wenn ich hinfahr
aus dieser Welt, wenn dir's gefällt.

2 O Jesu Christ, gestorben bist
am Kreuzessramm, du Gotteslamm.
Dein Wunden roth, in aller Noth,
dein theures Blut komm mir zu gut,
dein Leid'n und Sterb'n mach mich zum Erb'n
in deinem Reich den Engeln gleich.

3 O Heil'ger Geist, ein Tröster heißt,
an meinem End dein Trost mir send;
verlaß mich nicht, wenn mich anficht
des Teufels G'walt, des Todes Gestalt;
Mein höchster Hort nach deinem Wort
wollst du mir geb'n das ewge Leb'n.
